Recent 2 year bioassays in mice exposed by the dermal route to epoxy resin, the diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBPA), or to resins predominantly of DGEBPA have yielded very limited evidence of weak carcinogenicity. DGEBPA is a component of the resin in this product. The authors of this work concluded that the renal tumor evidence with this resin ***'was of no biological significance*** and that the resin ***is not a systemic carcinogen when applied to the dorsal skin of CF 1 mice.*** IARC concluded
